Our Minds Are Awake to You

The day is past, O Lord,
and we offer you our evening prayer.
Whatever in us is darkened by the night of sin
illumine with the brightness of your light,
and while our eyes are closed in sleep,
our minds may be awake to you,
so that, at the close of night,
we may welcome with your praises
the return of day.
